Sara McMann has suffered an undisclosed injury that will prevent her from making her Strikeforce debut against Liz Carmouche on Nov. 3.

Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a source close to the event Tuesday following an initial report from MMAWeekly.com.

McMann was expected to collide with Carmouche on the show’s main card, which takes place at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City and airs live on premium cable network Showtime. It is currently unknown if Carmouche will remain on the bill.

The event was initially supposed to be headlined by a heavyweight confrontation pitting Strikeforce grand prix winner Daniel Cormier against ex-UFC titlist Frank Mir, but Mir was forced to withdraw from that booking due to injury. A replacement opponent for Cormier has not yet been named.

McMann, 32, remains undefeated as a professional through six pro fights, most recently topping submission specialist Shayna Baszler at Invicta FC 2 following a two-fight ProElite stint that saw her best Raquel Pa’aluhi and Hitomi Akano. A 2004 Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling, McMann has earned half of her career victories by way of decision since making her pro debut last year.

Carmouche, 28, also competed last at July’s Invicta FC 2, submitting Ashleigh Curry with a second-round rear-naked choke. The victory marked the second straight triumph for “Girl-Rilla,” who made her exit from Strikeforce last year following back-to-back losses to then-bantamweight champion Marloes Coenen and Sarah Kaufman. Carmouche has gone the distance just twice during her nine-fight pro career, earning six of her seven wins by either knockout or submission.
